Strava is composed of dedicated, fun-loving individuals, unified by our mission to build the most engaged community of athletes in the world. And it feels like we’re onto something big. Millions of athletes are already on Strava, with thousands more joining every day, and we’ve assembled an awesome team to keep us growing all around the world. Strava is the Swedish word for “strive,” which epitomizes our attitude and ambition: We’re a passionate community, committed to our athletes, each other, our business, and the deeply held belief that there’s always time for a run, ride, coffee or all three.

About the Role

We are looking for an engineer to expand our Android applications. A strong background in mobile development isn't as essential as a passion for cutting edge technology, and a focus on building great applications that the Strava community will love. In this role you will also help define our public facing API, as our mobile applications are key consumers of it. Whether you are new to mobile development or an old pro, a specialist or a jack of all trades, we’d love to talk to you about the amazing stuff Strava is planning for mobile.

Who we're looking for
